This is the first time I saw my son.
The first time I felt his warm, wet skin against mine. The first time I heard his piercing cry.The first time I could see the beautiful features of the baby I had been carrying for nine months.
Nothing in the world could prepare me for how much this little boy would fill my heart with joy. I truly had no idea the blessing he would be and had no clue as to the amount of love I could have for him.
It's strange that something can seem like forever ago, and at the same time like just yesterday. First nights awake, first naps, first baths, first everythings. Then came first words, first steps and a world to explore.
And today you turned four.
The firsts continue: being a big brother, riding a bike, going to school.
I can't wait to see what the next year brings.
You will always be my beautiful boy.
